DDS Introduces its 3rd generation OA Knee Brace. It’s slimmer, lighter and most effective compared to its predecessors. Its uniquely designed triangular LTS Hinge will help treat moderate to severe osteoarthritis by reducing the load on both the medial and lateral compartments in the knee joint, whereas standard braces only unload one. The innovative Anti-Migration Silicone Guard is also the first of its kind which prevents the brace from slipping.
The posterior straps anchors on top of the calf and to the bottom of the hamstring. As the leg extends, the LTS Hinge gently pulls in the opposite directions, decompresses, and unloads the knee joint. This reduction of pressure supports and stabilizes the knee; eases pain and increases mobility.
Leverage Traction System is the culmination of intelligent frame and hinge design. The LTS technology provides decompression to the knee joint by re-establishing the natural space and cushioning that’s missing between the femur and the tibia when afflicted with osteoarthritis.
Any loss of cartilage between the knee joint or even a sudden increase in weight can strain the knees and cause painful inflammation.
The Triangular Shaped LTS Hinge acts as a lever to displace heavy body weight away from the affected knee. It is activated whenever the leg transitions from bent to extended positions. The straps anchor on top of the calf muscle and on to the bottom of the hamstring. As the leg extends, the innovative shape of the LTS Hinge gently pulls in opposite directions, unloading the joint to provide immediate support for the affected area.
A side by side comparison for the Triangular shaped LTS Hinge vs. a general knee brace. The LTS Hinge gently pulls in opposite directions diverting weight vertically away from the “bone on bone” joint.
Before Treatment Osteoarthritis in the knee is the reduction of the natural cushioning between the femur and the tibia. When this occurs, the bones rub more closely against each other which often can cause pain, swelling and limited mobility.
After TreatmentWeight is displaced from the affected knee. There is less contact between the bones and pain is relieved. Swelling is reduced with an increase in mobility.
Angle Lock System
For a patient who needs rehabilitation, and requires restricted movement of the leg, the OA Kneetrac’s Angle Lock System can be initiated to accommodate such needs.
The allowable range of motion for the knee should be controlled based on the patient’s recovery goals.

"I’ve had my brace since NOV. 24, 2012 my DDS lumbar support belt has truly been a blessing. Since I’ve been wearing it I have not had to get cortisone injections to relieve the pain in my back thigh/leg. I can really see the difference when I don’t wear it daily from now on. The brace supports greatly with prolonged sitting / standing. Ordering it was one of best decision I’ve made. When we travel to Eastman Georgia approx a 13 drive it gives me all the comforting support. Thank you for this great product."Mrs. Magnolia Jenkins
"I am delighted to say I am much improved and the standing during long surgeries is no longer a dreaded event. It was a bit uncomfortable to use initially and I had to get used to what pressure would work for me ... but I am at the point now where I will not stand for any length of time without it...."Maurice Leibman MD
